    Got this from work last night. Came from an injector test stand. There were two of them, both identical, one held diesel and the other (the one i got) held hydraulic fluid. Capacity is 75 US gallons and is made of aluminium. A little too big to run as a fuel tank, and is un-baffled inside. Was told, it cost around $650 to have it made three years ago. Came from here: http://www.metaltanks.com/


    Whatcha think?

    I doubt it. Not pressure rated, only fluid storage.

    Pretty sure the propane grill I have at home is aluminium.

    Would need a pretty big burner though.

    Looks like an excellent solvent tank to me. Wash, wash, parts, parts, lotion, lotion, hands, hands.

    I agree. Cut a large access door. Use the siphon tubes with spray heads attached. Mount a fluorescent light inside at the top, or remove the filler cap and put a spotlight in there. Good Score!

    above ground fuel tank for your hurricane genset....

    Very nice tank... me.. I would baffle it... and use it for a fuel tank... 1 minute with the plasma (evacuated of course).... about 15 actual weld minutes... 25 dollars of aluminum for the baffles.. make a couple of mounts...

    If it was here I think my logging buddy would buy it in a second
